Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As a kid: I wanted to be a nuclear physicist. Of course, I somehow
thought that involved piloting fighter jets, so I may not have had
the clearest idea of what that entailed... besides
Now: I am not a fighter-pilot nuclear physicist. I have settled for
the achievable dream of being an international superstar of stage
and screen. Yes, the "safety school" of careers. Speaking of safety
schools, while I do follow my passion for acting, I also do a lot
of tutoring for college entrance exams. [insert "gotta pay the
bills" cliché] Awesome.
I grew up in North Carolina, but not the banjo and racism area (it
was a more defined area when I was growing up). I moved out to LA
after college because [insert cliché about following your dream],
and after a ridiculous and rocky start to that, have been loving it
out here ever since. I have some absurd stories, but the most
ridiculous would probably involve my vendetta against Pimp My Ride,
which they TOTALLY started. (Note: this is actually not sarcastic -
they started it. For reals! Bastards.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I think I mostly answered it above, but in addendum to that, I
started playing kickball a year ago. It doesn't really encapsulate
what I'm doing with my life, but yet, somehow, doesn't it?
No. No, it doesn't. [he says hopefully]
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In no particular order: Socratic reasoning, air guitar, Sean
Connery impressions, inappropriate jokes, Rock Band, and I can sing
Old Man River from Showboat pretty well - my voice is deeper than
it looks like it should be.
The first things people usually notice about me

Lame question. So instead of answering, here's a quote I
"Ferryboats stirred across the Sound and disappeared toward the
horizon. Gatsby had seen something strange and new in this
untrammeled land, but contemplating it now I could only think one
sad, unvarnished thought. We are born, we eat a lot of lunches, and
then we die." - one of the failed endings Fitzgerald wrote for
Gatsby. I like it because it talks about lunches.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I love movies. I want my life to be movies. So: Exit
Through the Gift Shop, Son of Rambow, almost anything by Shane
Black, Edgar Wright, Tarsem, or Chris Nolan, too many more. Did I
mention I love movies? Also, terrible movies. The Room is one of
the funniest things I've ever seen. Currently looking for someone
to watch Birdemic with.
TV Shows: Community seasons 1-3 (can we agree that season 4 didn't
happen?), Always Sunny, the British Top Gear, Justified,
Californication, Archer, Parks & Rec, South Park, the League,
etc. Single camera comedies. Also - True Detective is REALLY good
Books: wildly varying. Just finished The Universe Within by Neil
Turok, working on The Theoretical Minimum by Leonard Susskind.
These books are super nerdy. My love of terrible movies does not
extend to terrible books - I really enjoy the Twilight movies,
because they're inadvertently hilarious, but only made it through 5
pages of the first book. Ugh.
Music: wildly varying. Right now, Macklemore, that one song by
Imagine Dragons, Fitz and the Tantrums, the Pitch Perfect
soundtrack, and a bunch of classic rock.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
modern furniture, polished concrete floors, classic cars, Rorschach
tests, Calvin and Hobbes, a higher purpose. I only actually possess
one of these things, and even then, it's a stretch to say I
"possess" it. So I guess I answered this question, at a minimum,
83% wrong. I'm better at the SAT. For reals.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is there a default profile that everyone starts with on this
site?!?! Or some blog that gave a profile outline that everyone
follows? Because I can't imagine that this many people go rock
climbing or kayaking or skydiving or [insert X-gamesesque activity]
regularly enough to include it in a profile pic or as an interest.
So either there's a big conspiracy to avoid me [narrows eyes, looks
around suspiciously], or there's a lot of embellishment going on to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
contemplating rewriting my profile to sound like a protagonist in a
Dashiell Hammett novel. Example:
On a typical Friday night I am
sitting in my office, knee deep in a bottle of Scotch, wondering
where my life went wrong. I clean my Colt .45 and put it back in
the shoulder holster, glad that there's one thing close to my heart
that won't leave me for my former partner.
It's one of those early summer nights where the air is heady
with promise and ozone and car exhaust. The door cracks open, the
blinds rattle against the window frame, and the wind carries in a
hint of one part Chanel No. 5 and two parts trouble. And right on
schedule, the trouble walks in the door.
Or... I could go with Haunted WWII vet or Graduate from The School
of Hard Knocks? As you can tell, Friday is exciting!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That episode of Futurama about Fry's dog made me cry. Way worse
than Old Yeller.
You should message me if

If you're looking for a best friend that you can't keep your hands

Or you want to tell me that my P.I. alter-ego is a rip-off of
Tracer Bullet. Because 1) yes, totally, and 2) seriously message me
right now, I love you.
